Then and Now

I've mentioned before that a) QUIRK is coming to trade paperback later this month, and b) that the entire first two-thirds of the lead story is being rewritten and redrawn for this edition. I'm now in a position where I can offer a side-by-side comparison of the original story (created all the way back in 1982) with the new version of 2011. If nothing else, this will make it obvious WHY the old story had to be remade!

First off, the splash panel to the story. The top image is the 1982 version, the bottom image is the new "remastered" version:

Next up, from page six of the original story and page 3 of the new version (yes, that's how much I've tightened the story up), is the arrival of the Frigid at the Gamestation Rysk, where the main part of the story is set:

Work is progressing much too slowly to suit me -- these are the only two completed panels that I have to show you. But a lot of ground work has been laid, and things are going to start happening soon. The book will be in the same format as Tinsel*Town. As the publication date gets nearer, Quirk and the gang will get their own dedicated page here. Lots of fun and surprises coming, so stay tuned!
